The 35 year old admitted that he had been surprised that a movie on his life will be made so early.”I never thought”I never thought it will happen so quickly, I thought it will take its time. It felt different to be speaking about my life and recall the incidents that have happened in my life. The past starts to resurface in front of you, and it was a different feeling altogether,” said Dhoni.
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput who portray’s India’s most-successful limited-overs skipper on screen,was also present for the occasion.Dhoni is impressed with the actor’s hard work in essaying his role on-screen.He mentioned “I feel Sushant is a tremendous actor and has got into the character. He practised for about nine months to get those shots right and was batting for close to two-and-a-half hours each day. While he never complained whenever he had to bat, he did so while doing the wicket-keeping drills. He complained of having to squat a lot, and that his fingers would hurt catching those balls. I told him, if you catch it right, then it won’t hurt”.
The Cricketer’s face lit up at the mention of Chennai. “The city is what it is because of the people. Chennai is my second home and I have played a lot of cricket. My Test debut was here and the biryani here is also special. People often talk about the biryani one gets in Kolkata or Hyderabad but the one here too is nice. The south Indian cuisine, the filter coffee and the leather goods one gets here are of high quality,”said Dhoni.
Dhoni accompanied by Sushant Singh Rajput went on to meet Superstar Rajnikanth in the evening after the event.He told the actor about his biopic and of its Tamil and Telugu versions.
The movie is slated to release on September 30.
